The Lost City of Atlantis Coming to Mt. Olympus

Continuing the trend of water park expansions we're seeing across the country, Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park has announced a gigantic new play structure as next year's addition.

The $4 million addition will be known as the Lost City of Atlantis, and will stand an impressive six stories tall and feature seven different attached water slides.

Provided by WhiteWater West, the structure will be a Giant RainFortress, more on the scale of Hersheypark's East Coast Waterworks than previous smaller versions.  The Lost City of Atlantis, in addition to the slides, will also have a massive tipping bucket along with a geyser that shoots water over 120 feet in the air.

Plenty of family friendly slides will also be a part of the Lost City.  There will be several smaller kiddie slides, but also a large family raft ride.  Thrill seekers can take a spin in the champagne bowl slide, or the whole gang can drop down into the family Boomerango. 

The new development will cover 3 acres at the park when complete.
